Last week's theme for the weekly project I participate in was floral. It's been a while since I found/picked/bought some flowers for the sole purpose of photographing them so it was really a lot of fun. When I was first getting serious about photography I did a lot of work with flowers...cheap models that I could move easily as I learned about light and shadows and camera settings.
As it usually happens I had several images that I really liked but only one shared with the weekly challenge. These are the "left overs" in no particular order. Enjoy!
Black and white flower portraits are so dramatic, aren't they?
Flowers...are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
I seem to have developed fascination with this window and the light it gives in my bathroom.
